Don't Worry, Be Happy

In every life, we have some trouble, but when you worry, you make it double. Happy Hour in the ’80s alleviated worries with sweet concoctions like the slippery nipple, the piña colada, and that ultimate worry-melter, the Long Island iced tea. But you won’t find those ’80s staples on the happy hour menu at Royal Oak’s Bistro 82. Instead, look for $5 well drinks, draft beers, and wines, along with $3 snacks like the Wagyu Steak Slider and the Parmesan Pomme Frites. If you’re still worried by the time you leave, call Bobby McFerrin. He’ll make you happy. bistro82.com

Let's Dance

For the fifth consecutive year, our Best Place To Learn To Dance has readers and their kids taking David Bowie’s 1983 advice. Dance City owner Rhona Fidler says, “Let’s Dance” to students of everything from hip-hop to ballet. And if you pine for the days of MC Hammer pants and doing the “running man,” their June 5 spring recital will be a throwback. dancecitybirmingham.com
